I daughter attend this school, and at first I thought that it was pretty stupid, but after a while, i realized that there was a reason for every rule that they have there. It keeps the school in order.

Im a student at BLMS. Ive been going there since 6th grade year and now Im going into the 8th grade. And throughout those 2 going to be 3 years there, I havnt had any issues, and I have learned a lot, and my GPA never went below 3.5 and the teachers there are great, and you learn theres as much as you will in any other school. There may be rumers that its a bad school. But its not. If your saying 'Oh my child went there and didnt learn anything.' ,well thats your childs fault, he or she decided not to learn. It wasnt the teachers faults. The Biotec program they have there is great! and the teachers that are in charge of it are fantastic. The clubs and sports are also great. I never had a thought about transfering. BLMS is a wonderful school and I recomend it.

This is an excellent school, though it has had a bad reputation in the past, the school has tremendously improved. I'm a student coming from a school with a higher grade than blms and honestly, I've never been challenged or paid attention to like at blms. I'm going to miss it!

This is one of the best schools I have been too. Some people think its a bad school, but they don't know. The teachers help you understand better instead of moving on. The transportation after school is incredible, and the activities they have. One of the BEST schools for discipline and misbehavior, they treat you right and help you with different opportunites.

My son graduated from BLMS in 2005 and went on to be accepted in a Magnet Program in a High School that had received an 'A' grade. This was all because of his teachers at BLMS. The teachers exposed him and expected nothing but quality work from him. While every school has its own unique problems, BLMS is no different. The difference is my involvement as a parent. I send my child to school to learn and excel in all areas of life in addition to what he is taught and the expectations at home. Learning and achieving begins at home, is developed in school and the community, and ends at home.

Not happy at all with teachers performance and treating students the same. Very unfair school towards parents and students.

Bear lakes is a very good school. it has a bad reputation but it all depends on the graduating class you get. the teachers are enthusiastic about what they do and all know what they are doing. very good at consequences for out of line behavior.

I just graduated from Bear Lakes and am now a freshman. I had three of the best years of my life there. The teachers are encouraging. The sports teams are equally leveled out and there are great extra-cirricular activities. I have heard that it has inproved over the year, which is because of the great staff and coaches. I loved it there and I desperately wish I could go back. I would reccomend this school to anybody. I wouldn't have liked any school better.
